Floralscapes now in store!

Flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph, besides my baby Zane, of course.  I recently spent some time sorting my digital pictures of flowers, and picked out some of my favorites.  I know as a designer, that it is not easy to find good quality CU-OK photos, so I decided to offer them for other designers to use as well.  Here are the previews:

lvd_floralscapes_bundle lvd_floralscapes_bundle_001 lvd_floralscapes_bundle_002 lvd_floralscapes_bundle_003

There are 60 in all.  Each photo is 3600x3600 (12x12 at 300ppi) and in JPEG format.  They are available as a bundle for just $30, which is 50 cents each.  Or, in sets of 4 for $3 per set, which is 75 cents each. 

I also thought I would offer a sampler, which is also CU-OK. 


Get the sampler at Digital Scrap Design through August 21st.

You can also get the Floralscapes Bundle at Digital Scrap Design. 

As an added bonus, you can also take $5 off when you buy the whole bundle. That's 60 CU stock photos for $25! The coupon code is floralfan and is only good through the 21st!

These products will soon be available at Pretty Scrappy, as well.  However, we are currently experiencing server problems, so I have not been able to add them to the store yet.

Be blessed!

A new avatar for me...

So, I belong to a Yahoo group called Resource Wars.  Every week a member is picked to be the Member of the week and gets showered with tags from the other members.  Pixilyn, who is an avid tag maker, made this one for me.  I absolutely love it!


I requested a bald doll, since I am bald.  And she made that for me.  How sweet.  And I love the play on words!

So, I think I'm gonna use her for my forum pix.  Yippee!

Be blessed,

Are you playing with a Full Deck?


This cute kit coordinates with my Zoo Spirit kit.

It is formatted to fit the standard deck of playing cards.

You can use just the card fronts: Print out your layout, trim, and affix to a standard size (2.5x3.5) playing card.

Or make your own personalized deck: Personalize the included deck, print, trim, and combine with the card front of your choice.

You can also use to make a card-sized brag book. No need to make the whole deck. Customize the blank card enclosed, print, trim, and combine with the card fronts.

Five card fronts to choose from.

Includes full deck of cards. Ace-King in four suits (Elephant, Giraffe, Kangaroo, and Monkey) plus two jokers.

Cards are on transparent PNG background to maximize versatility. You can personalize all 54 cards if you want.

Also included is one blank white card face template.

Layered PSD and separate PNG files included.

On sale for the next week at Pretty Scrappy for just $3.99.  That's 33% off the regular price!

You can also snag this sampler card that is not included in the deck.


Get the sampler at Pretty Scrappy or Digital Scrap Design. Sampler card available free until the 20th, then it will be $1.99.

Get the Full Deck at Pretty Scrappy or Digital Scrap Design.

Get the Zoo Spirit kit, free for the entire month of August, at Pretty Scrappy or at Digital Scrap Design.  Kit will be $4.99 as of September 1st.
